Over the years, HDB flat designs have improved to keep up with changing design preferences and lifestyles. Nowadays, owners have greater flexibility in deciding how they would like to layout their homes, enabling them to create unique homes that showcase their individual tastes and styles.

Get the home of your dreams with the latest HDB BTO Sales Launch where about 3,800 flats will be offered. With a variety of flats in Jurong West, Sengkang and Kallang Whampoa, here’s what you can expect in these latest projects:

Open Kitchen Concept

Like to entertain your guests while you cook? Or watch over your kids while you prepare their meals? You can do so easily now with these new flat designs. Since the February 2018 BTO sales exercise, all new BTO projects come with the open kitchen concept, where feasible.

What’s good about open kitchens?

Of course, without walls between the kitchen and its adjacent spaces, the home immediately looks more spacious and airy. There’s also more flexibility in design as homeowners can explore ideas such as incorporating kitchen islands and bar counters, glass partitions or display shelves as dividers for more storage space.

Here are some stylish ideas:

Allow your kitchen counter to combine seamlessly with your dining table

With this design, you’ll never have to worry about missing out on conversations with your family or friends as you whip up their meals. It is also the perfect way to visually elongate the length of your kitchen, creating the illusion of a bigger kitchen.

Position the dining area like how you would a kitchen island — right in front of the kitchen

This strategy is a subtle yet clever way to create a focal point in your home — the area everyone would most probably be gathering around at when you have a house party! Because it sits just adjacent to the kitchen and living area, it is easy to access all the main spaces in the home, whether it is to grab a drink from the fridge, or hop onto the sofa to catch the latest TV series.

Does HDB have a showflat to showcase the actual flat types and latest interior design ideas?

Yes, there are stylishly designed HDB showflats on display at the MyNiceHome Gallery at HDB Hub. There is a showflat for every flat type – from two-room flexi units to five-room apartments, they come in a range of decor styles that include resort-inspired, industrial style, minimalist, and classic.
